Burn & trauma centre building left unutilized

CHITRAL: The burn and trauma centre at the District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital Chitral, which was completed with German funding three years ago, could not be made operational due to non-appointment of staff by the provincial government.

As a result, there are still no facilities to treat burn victims whose number has been on the rise. A few days ago, eight family members were burnt in Ayun and they were referred to Peshawar where two of them passed away.–GH Farooqui
